This is a Widening of the original PrintrBot base that I had an idea for since I am building a larger than stock Printrbot. It is designed to hold 12mm Z rods and LME12UU bearings from VXB. I have stylized the parts I edited to be a bit more edgy. I will be stylizing and uploading the rest of the pieces as I replace them on my machine (which is not complete yet.)
the X axis will have slightly less travel to make room for the 12mm hardware, and the Z rods will sit a little bit deeper in the base slightly reducing the Z travel per rod size.
I have not yet printed these, if anyone has feedback I would love to hear it.
Oh, this is my first THING!
Ready to rock! I will print these this weekend or as soon as I get my Printrbot working.
Base with 8mm Z rod uploaded, make sure you get the right one.
Will upload source files at a later time.
print and assemble like a normal PrintrBot, replacing 8mm Z hardware with 12mm versions. You will need more parts from the original Printrbot, as this is only the base and X end pieces.
